Project PAK

Project Partnership for Alaska’s Kids (PAK) is a collaboration between Head Start and the School of Nursing (SON). The partnership allows SON's Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) students and faculty to aid Head Start and Early Head Start grantees in rural and remote Alaska in keeping current with required health screenings. This program, which began in 2013, has allowed four UAA faculty and approximately 15 students to travel to nine sites in rural and remote Alaska to perform well-child preventative health screenings and physicals for children enrolled or eligible for Head Start and Early Head Start.
